A class-action lawsuit
was filed against Oakmont Senior Living for allegedly engaging in a scheme to defraud seniors, people with disabilities, and their families at its assisted living facilities in California. The complaint alleges that facilities falsely represent that personnel performs assessments of residents and provides them with the care they need when, according to the complaint, Oakmont designs budgets for staffing at facilities to maximize profits resulting in facilities that do not have enough trained staff to provide the promised care to residents. The lawsuit was originally filed in state court in September 2017 and transferred
to federal court in October 2017. (Lollock et al v. Oakmont Senior Living, LLC
, Case No. 17-cv-5912, N.D. Cal.)
